  • Howdy! Pop from Pa.

    As much as I've been working with wood for over 30 years, I have to admit it wasn't till the beginning of this year that I found the patience to use a scroll saw. I've had 2 previously that I wound up selling because I was constantly breaking blades and loosing my patience. Boy is it great to have the patience now. Most of my projects were larger items; oak ice boxes, furniture and the biggest of all, my 1929 Model A Ford truck. I've made the Christmas presents for family and employees for about the last 10 years and when the numbers grew, the size had to get smaller. My first scroll saw project was a scenery based wooden saw blade I got the pattern for ... just to try. I'm currently working on another with more detail. I've made vases of roses, welcome signs of different styles and even used it when I made some working wooden padlocks I thought were interesting. I've added compressed air to the scroll saw as well as a foot switch and worklight over the last couple months. I'm really looking forward to checking out some of the other members work as well as sharing some of my own.

                    Welcome Pop! Felton, PA, is that out in the York/Lancaster area?

                    So where did you suddenly find this elusive patience so necessary for scrolling? I'd like to get a refill myself sometime.

                      Bill...I hope you don't discover 'patience' the way I discovered it. For health reasons, I've pretty much s-l-o-w-e-d down everything. Funny when you retire and quit 'running' at 100 mph, you find it boring at first. Then when the old body decides to catch up from all that 'running', you discover you really missed a lot as you ran past it. I've rediscoverd all the joy of wood working and how you can try to pass on that passion by sharing what you can do with the next generation. Kinda like the Model A hobby I have too. And yes... Felton is just below York and Red Lion. My father-in-law used to tell everyone he needed his Visa and Passport to come visit we were so far out.

                      ChuckD... my shop is equipped with air throughout because of all the pneumatic tools I have from restoring/building the Model A Handyman truck. I added a pressure regulator and flex tube to the scrollsaw and plugged it into the system. Easy to do actually.

                      After 'surfing' all through the site, it seems there a mass amount of knowledeg base here. Although typing is a flat medium, I get the impression we've got some great personalities too just from reading posts and replies. I've just posted some of my projects on the bragging section. Please look them over and tell me what you think.

                        Hello again POP, I assume then you are using the compressed air to blow the sawdust off the saw! Interesting!!

                            A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                            Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                            The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                            Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...
